Sirius Satellite Radio To Be Offered On Ford, Lincoln And Mercury Vehicles

DEARBORN, MI and NEW YORK, NY – Available in September, Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) and SIRIUS (NASDAQ: SIRI), the premier satellite radio broadcaster, will offer satellite radio as a dealer-installed option on ten different Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles in the 2004 model year:

Ford: Thunderbird, Mustang, Explorer, Sport Trac and Expedition
Lincoln: Navigator, Aviator, LS and Town Car (available December)
Mercury: Mountaineer
Ford Motor Company also plans to expand its vehicle lineup offering SIRIUS, with details to be the subject of a future announcement. Pricing plans will be announced shortly.

“Ford Motor Company is dedicated to technological advancements and providing features that our customers want. The SIRIUS service fits very well with our commitment to bring new car buyers the most innovative applications and services in their vehicles,” said Jeff Wood, Director, Electrical & Electronic Systems Engineering at Ford Motor Company.

“Ford Motor Company and its brands have been entrenched in consumers’ hearts and minds for 100 years now. We are thrilled to join Ford in offering SIRIUS to its new car buyers across so many of its leading brands,” said Doug Wilsterman, Senior Vice President, OEM at SIRIUS.

Satellite radio is technically referred to as Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS). SDARS enables the delivery of a digital signal from an uplink facility on ground to orbiting satellites in space. The signal is then projected back to antennas and receivers across the continental US to a governmental-specified frequency. Simply stated, SDARS is a system allows a radio station to broadcast a signal from more than 22,000 miles away to your car radio for near CD-quality music with virtually no commercials as compared to traditional radio.

By broadcasting with satellite technology, this allows listeners to hear programming from all over the US without having to change a channel while driving cross-country.

SIRIUS is the only satellite radio service bringing listeners 100 streams of the best music and entertainment coast-to-coast. SIRIUS offers 60 music streams with no commercials, along with 40 world-class sports, news and entertainment streams for a monthly subscription fee of $12.95. Stream Designers create and deliver uncompromised music in virtually every genre to our listeners 24 hours a day.

SIRIUS is the leading OEM satellite radio provider, with an exclusive relationship with Ford.
